About Amanda

My name is Amanda and I'm a 22-year-old student from Norway. I moved to Australia in 2018 to study at the University of Western Australia, where I'm studying psychology.

I have a big passion for animals and love to take care of and spend time with them. I have a dog back in Norway, and I've had cats and guinea pigs as pets in the past. I do however feel confident saying that I have a lot of knowledge of a wide variety of different animals. Animals are a big interest for me and I spend a lot of time learning about different animals and what care requirements they have while daydreaming about having my own private zoo.

I am a full-time student, but I do have a fairly flexible schedule, with a maximum of 3 hours a day at uni.

I started pet sitting through Mad Paws in 2018, and it has given me the opportunity to take care of a lot of different animals. I can also assure you that if you own an animal I don't have much experience with or knowledge about, I will research it before taking care of it, as I want you to feel comfortable leaving your animal with me, knowing that I will do anything I can to care for your pet in the best way possible.

My dogs were so enthusiastic to see Amanda. I’ll definitely have her again.

Amanda was terrific with our big boy, Otis. She handled him very well - firm when she needed to be but gentle in her manner. Amanda communicated with us regularly with updates & photo moments which were reassuring for us whilst away. I can highly recommend her as a reliable, confident and responsible house & dog sitter.

Amanda looked after our dogs well which is i guess the most important part! But we left our house clean and expected to come home to the same thing or at least similar. Unfortunately that's far from what we came home to. Amanda is great, friendly and cares about the animal's but if your looking for a house sitter as well as dog sitter as the madpaws adds say, I unfortunately can not recommend.
